Twitter is rolling out the ability to add content warnings to individual posts


Under new CEO Parag Agrawal, Twitter is stepping up its efforts to clean up its platform and now the microblogging platform is giving all users access to the content warning feature.

Once you post the tweet with a disclaimer, the image or video will appear blurry, with a content disclaimer explaining why you flagged it.



“The option to add ad-hoc sensitive content warnings to photos and videos you tweet is now available to everyone on Android, iOS, and the web. To add a content warning, tap the flag when editing photo/video after attaching to your Tweet,” the company said in a statement.

Multiple warnings can be labeled for an individual medium.

Agrawal has previously said his top priority in the new role is to improve business execution and streamline the operation of the microblogging platform.

Twitter is also revising how it handles problematic and abusive tweets flagged by its users, with the aim of bringing a more “human-first” approach to improving the quality of tweets flagged by its users for misinformation, hate speech, spam and others.
